Bells of Peace – November 11, 5pm

November 4, 2018

Poppies with blue sky

This Remembrance Day, we remember the great cost and sacrifice that war has exacted on so many men and women. We particularly remember the First World War. On November 11, 1918, church bells in communities across Canada broke out spontaneously in ringing upon hearing the news that the Great War had finally ended in victory. Now, one hundred years later, churches across Canada are partnering with the Royal Canadian Legion to have those bells ring again. Aylesford Baptist is one of those churches. 

On Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 5:00 pm, Aylesford Baptist Church will join other churches in the Valley, the Maritimes, and across Canada in the ringing of our bells. At 5:00 pm, we will ring our bells one hundred times to mark the one hundred years that have passed since the cessation of hostilities that ended World War I. We invite you to be present for this time of remembrance and prayer, as we stand in silence outside the church, remember the cost of our freedom, and pray to God for His hand to be upon the nations as we anxiously await the coming of the Prince of Peace.
